If you’re in a new development and not already connected to the network a $300 OPENetworks New Development Charge may apply.

The $300 New Development Fee is charged for FTTH OPENetworks broadband connections in the following circumstances:

The first connection at a premises (unit/townhouse/house) in a newly developed area i.e. a suburb or multi dwelling units with no pre-existing telecommunications infrastructure.

The first connection(s) at a premises in an establish area in the rare instance that a developer has increased the number of dwellings on the same plot of land e.g. demolished a single house and built a block of units.

Once the NDF has been charged at an address, it will not be charged again for subsequent connections, provided the number of dwellings at that address has not increased.

If this fee applies to you our Customer Service Staff will contact you before placing the order with OPENetworks and give you the opportunity to cancel your order.
